Targeting to woo minority voters, the state BJP’s minority cell is going to launch movement demanding recognition of 10,000 unregistered madrassas ahead of the Lok Sabha election.

The saffron brigade’s minority cell today organised two days workshop of the minority members to inform them how the Central government led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi working for the welfare of the minority people of the country and the BJP is not the party of the antiminority people.

The president of the BJP’s minority cell Ali Hossain said that the TMC-led government deprived the minority community people very much even ignored the vital developmental issues of the minorities.

“TMC-led government promised that the teachers will be recruited for the madrassa but no recruitment took place. Even the government dissolved the madrassa board,” Mr Hossain said. The minority cell of the saffron brigade will also launch movement against stopping of the investigation of the Waqf properties related scam in the state. “There is a corruption in Waqf board but the state government is playing inactive role to change the scenario,” he said.

The minority cell of the party will also highlight that the TMC-led government is only appeasing the minority community people instead of their proper development to strengthen the vote bank.

Mr Hossain alleged that the TMC is using a major section of the minority community people to unleash of violence for the party’s political gain. “Anybody can see how the minority people are being affected following the political violence. It is because of the TMC’s vote bank politics. People of the minority are being used to commit crime by the TMC party in several areas,” he said.

Earlier making a shift in its political strategy, the BJP had given tickets to an overwhelming number of Muslim candidates in the rural polls in West Bengal with an aim to corner a large chunk of crucial minority votes in the state. The BJP had more than 850 candidates from the minority community for the rural polls this year.

According to state BJP sources, this is the highest number of candidates the saffron party has fielded ever in the panchayat polls in the state this year. In the upcoming Lok Sabha poll, the party will leave no stone unturned and organizing training its minoirty members to campaign in the minority populated areas.

The ruling TMC, however, discounted BJP’s minority outreach plan and asserted that they continue to have faith in party chief Mamata Banerjee. Earlier senior TMC leader and party’s secretary general Partha Chatterjee said that the minorities have full faith in TMC and the BJP gave nominations to minorities and were fuelling riots in the state.
